Takara Leben, Hitachi Zosen and Solar Frontier announced today that construction has started on a 15MW solar power plant located on a former golf course in Nakagawa, Tochigi Prefecture, Japan. The power generated by the plant will be sold to the grid. Takara Leben owns the former golf course, Hitachi Zosen is providing EPC services for the project, and Solar Frontier supplied its CIS thin-film modules, which provide high power output in real operating conditions.
The three companies involved in this project have all worked on separate megasolar installations before. They have pooled their collective know-how to make this installation environmentally friendly and economically sound, as well as drive the ongoing adoption of solar power.
